Iran Nuclear Deal: Will the Iranian nuclear deal prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons?
The Iran nuclear deal is the best way of preventing Iran from building a nuclear weapon. Rejecting the agreement and increasing sanctions on Iran would alienate U.S. allies who have long worked on the deal. It would also embolden Iran to spurn further negotiations and race to build a bomb. A military strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities would likely unleash a regional war.
Iran will likely cheat on the Iran nuclear deal’s terms and, once free of sanctions, use its newfound wealth to fund dangerous groups and undermine U.S. interests in the Middle East. The United States should impose harsher sanctions, maintain a credible threat of military force, and work with pro-democracy dissidents in Iran to topple the nation’s oppressive regime.
